Irish whiskey is the base spirit for this creamy lowball that is similar to the vodka based White Russian. The crème de menthe adds just a hint of mint and gives the finished drink it's light green color. Now that you've got the cocktail, here's the song When Irish Eyes Are Smiling
A drink that will last most of the night, an Irish Pride is a smooth, delicious highball that is a wonderful mix of flavors. This cocktail is light enough in alcohol content that it is a great choice for those who do not want a hangover in the morning. Because the recipe is so simple, even a novice bartender can mix it up when given the ingredients and ratio.
While your tastes may be turning to lighter, "springier" cocktails this time of year, there is still the occasional desire for a warm drink. This Irish Punch is a gentle twist on the Hot Toddy and a nice option for serving a crowd.
Drinking this may be unlike any tea party you have ever attended, but it would make an excellent addition to one. This Irish Tea Party combines Jameson Irish whiskey with chilled green tea, but the twist is the absinthe rinse you give your glass before you do anything else.
No Irish spirits are used to make an Irish Whip, instead vodka and Cuban rum are the base spirits. However it is served in a beer mug and has a light green coloring thanks to the crème de menthe, making this cocktail a great alternative to drinking green beer
